The venue will be the ET Willet Park and the aspiring young leaders will be introduced to five exciting sustainable development goals that will serve to open their minds and create their vision for the year 2030. The participants will also be better prepared for leadership roles and will have the opportunity to improve their communication skills.
The camp is open to children under the age of 18 and the pre-registration has already started and will conclude on March 15th.
The fee per week is $25.00 or $50.00 for the two weeks. The child will receive a T-shirt, once the registration is completed.
Late registration commences on April 1st and concludes on April 7th at $35.00 weekly or $70.00 for the two weeks. A child registering during this period is NOT guaranteed a T-shirt.
There is also a special offer for parents with two or more children. They will pay $5.00 less on registration.
The camp is being run by the Department of Youth and Sports, in collaboration with Toastmasters international, with input from the Nevis Toastmasters club.
The emphasis is on young people who are interested in public speaking or who are basically shy but need to develop their public speaking abilities.
Registration forms are available at the Youth and Sports Department, located upstairs the Reliable Motors mini-complex.
